The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission has confirmed that Endowment, a “went wrong, vanned off” in the 4th at Ellis August 8, is indeed dead – “slab fracture,” right foreleg. In the death report, it was noted that the then 1-year-old – yes, 1-year-old -filly was injured while training in February – an injury that required surgery “to remove chips from her right carpus.” Yes, that’s the same leg that eventually broke. In addition, the Commission said this: “The trainer’s veterinarian provided veterinary records for the previous 60 days. The filly had had both carpi injected with hyaluronic acid and a corticosteroid.” So, that’s injury, surgery, injections, breakdown, death – and all before the age of 2 1/2. That poor, poor girl. This terrible, terrible industry.
